|Mood Ring - Another Neglected Hobby|
Mood Ring opens with the aptly-titled “Blissed”, in which a bell-like drone is accented by choir-like voices that seem to invite the listener to float away on a cloud while at the same time lamenting the sadness of something lost long ago. This theme is carried into the next selection, “Melancholia”, a slow grinding drone that hints at a darkness descending. “Snow Day” presents a slowly-shifting note cycle accented by subtle percussion patterns and garbled voice-like sounds that make...

|Another Neglected Hobby- Elements Two: Feathers And Pollen [treetrunk 230] - Another Neglected Hobby|
Another Neglected Hobby is an electronic music project of Mark Cotton. This release, like its predecessor Elements One: Beeswax and Rust, was inspired by revisiting a series of paintings Mark created using beeswax and rust on canvas instead of traditional paints. The sound is a mixture of drone and rhythmic elements, layered patterns and filtered recordings, shifting from simple, repetitive note patterns to tribal drums and pulsing syncopation.

|Glimmer - Another Neglected Hobby|
|Heat - Another Neglected Hobby|
“Heat” by Another Neglected Hobby is a departure from some of the longer ambient drone pieces that are typical for the genre in which they record. This album is a collection of shorter, more rhythmic and melodic works building on repetitive phrases and tones. The mood invoked by the sounds on this album ranges from light and whimsical, as in the song “Lobby” to the darker, more menacing-sounding tracks like “Radiate” and “Heat”.

|Lingo Tango - Another Neglected Hobby|
This recording is inspired by the paintings of the late American artist Ed Paschke. I had long been interested in Mr. Paschke’s work when I was fortunate enough to be able to visit a major exhibition of his work at the Art Institute of Chicago over twenty years ago. I remember being amazed at the luminosity of the images on the large canvases, and would never look at painting the same way again. I hope that releasing this work as a dedication to Ed Paschke will prompt the listener to visit www...

|Elements One - Another Neglected Hobby|
Elements One: Beeswax and Rust Beeswax and rust both occur in nature, although through very different processes. Both are produced from other materials; beeswax from a combination of chemicals processed and secreted by honey bees and rust from the oxidation of iron in the presence of water or moisture in the air. And while both beeswax and rust occur in nature with no help from man, the presence and actions of man can have an impact on the production of both...
